HACKENSACK – EarthCam, a webcam network headquartered in Hackensack, announced its 12th annual list of the world’s “25 Most Interesting Webcams.”
The wide-range of 2010 honors were awarded to webcams from well-know landmarks such as Abbey Road and Hollywood Boulevard to puppies, firefoxes, hummingbirds . . . and sea monkeys. Some quiet corners of the world like Island Losinj (Croatia) and Brucken (Germany) have intriguing cameras while beaches are represented this year as awards went to webcams in Hawaii and Thailand.
‘Breathtaking’ is the best word to describe a few winners: the AuroraMAX Live camera in Canada, the cityscape webcam in Zurich, Switzerland and the Naples and Vesuvio webcam in Italy. But a couple of the more off-beat webcams chalked up votes; the NASA Curiosity Cam in California and “Rich Da Barber” in Virginia.

“We at EarthCam are pleased to honor our winners for their creativity, wide-range use of live webcam technology and their ability to entertain and educate millions,” said Brian Cury, founder and CEO of EarthCam.
“For the first time we have multiple HD camera winners from across the globe, raising the quality of the video significantly. These winning cameras are a perfect cross-section of the worldwide webcams. They make it possible for viewers to travel virtually not only to extraordinary sites around the globe that they may never get the chance to visit but also to a simple backyard or a home of a person they may never meet. These webcams, no matter their size, have the ability to create bonds and relationships between the viewers and the camera subjects whether they are used for entertainment or solid commercial applications.”
